Default Temp Guns

Data brings up a good point about temp guns. But the Exergen is still by far the most accurate and consistant. Especially when working in max mode. In max mode it measures all temps in the focal point of its view point, and displays only max temp read. Even if the cone is 1/2 inch from glow plug it measures all temps within that 1/2 inch area below. I did read that it is not necessary for the temp cone to be right on contact with the item being measured. The instructions state that the readings will only be off a degree or two. That works for me. The focal point of some of the $30.00 temp guns isn't even close and consistant with the exergens, and they have no self correcting software either.

Hi

I ran the BRB set last week and it was a little sluggish. I suppose this was due to bad tuning so I just tried to tune it up. I was running around 240 degF on tick over and it was reving OK but the bottom end was a bit sluggish.

I am running 0.3mm head clearance (1 copper shim in nova engine)

I thought it might be overgeared so changed the 16T on the RRR to 15T and tried again

After refuling it was a different car. It pulled away really well.

When I checked I had mistakenly filled the car up with 25% nitro instead of 16%!!

This makes me think that the head clearance should be reduced a bit for 16% but I am only running 1 copper shim. If i take this out i will be down to 0.2mm. What do you think will this be OK or am i going in the wrong direction?

Cheers

Hi Ziggi.
In talking about shimming-yes les head clearnce, higher compression ratio-higher acceleraiton, but many other variables involve. Defenetly with 25% nitro you will need add extra .1 mm shim (compare to 16%), but on some conditions you can leave it alone and it will work just right. I sugest never go lower then 0.3 mm shimming (it is about squishband), just try to work with pipe and clutch settings.

Thanks Ed.


I ran an outlaw pipe today and it was a lot better. I'll try to get a longer pipe to give me more torque

Cheers

Hi Rover.
We use only legal pipes, so it is 5 mm stinger.
Best regards
Edward

Hi Ziggy
I think you can stay with regular stinger ( what pipe are you using-brand?), and work with clutch and second speed . Is your set still tight?
Edward

Hi Ed.
The set is still tight. It sticks a little TDC.

I am using RD logics for the nationals. The outlaw pipe was a 6mm stinger. T3 from far east.

I will try to adjust the mid range. The top end comes in a bit quick and as its a lot richer than the bottom the power drops in he mid range. If I screw in the mid range screw this will keep it on the lower needle longer. I know your not supposed to mess with this but it seems the next logical step
